Those shoes are wicked. Love the juxtaposition of partially bared feet with a winter coat (which also has great details).

The colour of her hair *makes* this outfit for me. I love how her shoes has a reddish tone to it just like her hair. A well pulled together look.

Nice trench. The whole look is kind of architectural for me.
If you look closer, de soles have the same color as the seat in the bike, and really similar to her hari color too. It goes reddish borwn, black, brown, black,brown.

In this case I have to argue that the bike is superfluous, Sart.

It's a nice addition, but not needed. Her look by itself is just phenomenal!! However, I will gladly add her to the ciclistas fashionistas team.

As the resident of a mid-sized American city crisscrossed by busy highways, I just don't understand how women can ride bicycles in heels like this. I would be terrified for my life to ride a bike to work even wearing flats! It must be a whole different culture! Heels this high are attractive to look at, but in my experience, are killingly painful to wear for more than a few minutes.

Anonymous princess glee said ... (4:34 PM) : 

I dunno...somewhat od world creepy in a modern cool kinda way?

I want the shoes, I want the bike. I think it's the black basket that's making me think she's an undertaker leading a pet funeral procession.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:02 PM) : 

Totally love it and the hair but I really want to know how far she travels on that bike in those shoes? Doe she have some cycling shoes in the bag for the other 15km we don't know about or is she riding to the other end of the block?

This questions are very much on my mind as someone who cycles to commute, wearing day clothes not lycra, but finding myself in rather more practical attire than illustrated here.

Anonymous Vanessa said ... (5:58 PM) : 

To those of you who are saying she can't cycle in those heels - you must have never been on a bike.
You push with the balls of your feet, and therefore a high heel is fine as it exposes the balls of your feet. It's not ideal, and if you're going at some pace and have to stop it will probably be difficult but I've done it in Central London and it's not exactly rocket science.

Such striking compositions, both the woman with her hair, clothes, bike and your picture. How do you do it!?

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:03 AM) : 

Trust me skeptics, I am a high-heeled wearing Parisian woman who rides my bike in heels all of the time. It's really not a big deal...the bike works the same no matter what you are wearing. And there is no reason that the heels would get dinged since they are not doing the pushing, nor do high heels limit how far you can ride, be it 15 kms or 15 blocks. (That said, most people in major European cities live in them so that may be what is throwing the American readers off. And we have bike lanes all over Paris.)

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:20 AM) : 

Vanessa, no one is saying this woman cannot ride in these shoes but a number of people are questioning how far and how they'd be in the variety of situations that cyclist inevitably meet. Any of us could ride to the corner shop in them...once :-)

I wish I could bike in Lisbon, it's so chic and cool in such a environment way.

 

Blogger Kelly said ... (7:08 AM) : 

I agree with Vanessa above - cycling in heels really is not that hard. Frankly with these babies I'd much rather be cycling in them than walking in them! Is it my imagination, or can you see red marks on her feet where the shoes are chafing?...
But, this is all very elegant. I have a similar bicycle but I have never dressed to match it. Maybe I'll have to start.

 

Blogger SucceedingatFailing said ... (7:34 AM) : 

I JUST LOVE THOSE SHOES!! And the bike just completely adds to the look, amazing!

This is performance fashion. The bike is an accessory. If women want to wear those instruments of torture on their feet, chacune à son goût.

 

Blogger Allison said ... (8:56 AM) : 

As one who commutes 5 miles by bike, always with tennis shoes or flats, I appreciate the currents of doubt surrounding the feasibility of this striking outfit. Like Vanessa, I can confirm that for short trips, such as going from my office to another research building, biking in heels is not that difficult. Either way, I'm not sure that practicality is the point of this photo: it's a gorgeous shot of a gorgeous woman!

I ride my bike thru downtown Los Angeles and crowded Venice Beach while wearing heels. It is not difficult and not all that different than riding in flats. I find it impractical to change shoes to ride a bike. Like someone pointed out, your weight is in the ball of the foot in heels anyway. What...are there people out there trying to walk in heels on their heels?

i agree with the intelligent people saying it's not hard to bike in heels. it's probably much easier to bike in them than to walk in them, really.
that being said, i always get jealous of photos of ladies wearing sky high heels and looking like they're not in any pain. this lady does not make me jealous. her poor chafed feet make me want to hand her a pair of fuzzy slippers and tell her that people won't judge her if she takes her heels off for only a day.

Everything about her chic and lovely, except the shoes. Unlike many comment's above I find them rather ugly and uncomfortable looking. They clash with the rest of her outfit.

I haven't visited this blog in a while and I've realized how much I've missed it! Nothing beats a sartorialist bicycle post :)

I live in a cycling town (Cambridge, UK) and have drunkenly cycled home in heels many-a-time (miraculous that i'm still alive, really) and while I'll agree that it's very easy to do because the pedals just hook into the gap nicely, this absolutely MURDERS the underside of your shoe and can scratch the heel pretty badly. Learned this the hard way when I practically destroyed a pair of brand new lanvins...

Coincidentally, if you like to live on the edge, try cycling in wedges!

Have just read your blog for the first time, and I am largely impressed. Not just with the blog, but with the number of people not hesitating to dress it up! I have recently started my own blog site aimed at inspiring women to glam it up for no reason at all other than they feel like it! Keep up the good work, and keep us inspired! www.whynotwearit.blogspot.com

Hey Sar, You think you can give a lady some holiday gift ideas for the fashionable man who has everything? Thanks!

This photo makes me want her to turn around. If I saw this woman while on the street, I'd try my darn-est to catch up and see her face.

Never has a bike matched an outfit so seemlessly.
